A local neighborhood bar and café in Subiaco, Bark is in fact the smallest bar in town. Don’t be deterred by this, Bark offers old-fashioned hospitality and friendly service. The bar has a relaxed vibe and great Australian beverages personally sourced by its bar team. There’s even a virtual fireplace and board games available to complete the cosy atmosphere.

Step below the CBD and into the dimly-lit, enchanting Bobeche bar. Trademarked for its offering of free-flowing popcorn, this carnival-themed bar is heavily influenced by the golden era of speakeasies and is the perfect late-night hang for city bar-hoppers. Perhaps most famous for serving their cocktails in decorative teapots, Bobeche also offer a Hot Coconut Buttered Rum special during the cooler season.

Tucked away from the bustle of Northbridge, Frisk may be small – but it is filled to the brim with over 180 varieties of exquisite gin. This dog-friendly bar also offers a large selection of whisky, wine, beer and cider – and don’t skimp on the bar snacks which include cheese boards, charcoal pork jerky and even marshmallow-filled dessert toasties.
